I just saw this in the Smithsonian American History Museum and was amazed!

I owned one of these! Basic binary 4 bit analog computer, made from plastic and metal wire. It gave me my first basic computing skills (from which I never advanced). The clock is the slide near the bottom... slide it out to the right, then back in.

I had one of these, too. Never figure out how to work the *&^(&*^ thing!

Got this or something like it from Edmund Scientific when I was a kid. Never even got close to putting it together, much less using it.

Long on aspiration, short on follow-through and know-how. Stray pieces would show up here & there for years afterward.

Closest to that since that was writing 10 or 20 lines of BASIC to use the SID chip in a Commodore 64 as a wah-wah. Not a computer person by any stretch . . .

More powerful than Ray Milland and Rosey Grier combined!
